Early years workers have one of the most important jobs in society - together with families, they are laying the foundations for young children's futures from the day they are born. Young Children and Racial Justice provides a comprehensive approach to the issues facing all early years workers in exploring with young children what it means to enjoy living in our multicultural society.
Young Children and Racial Justice shows how racism is defined, how it so often distorts our view of the world and how we need to really understand it if we are to counter its influence in the early years. Examining prejudice, discrimination, legislation and policy making, this book shows how children learn their attitudes to people who are different from themselves. Issues covered include government policies, terminology, skin colour, living in mainly white areas, terrorism, name-calling, community cohesion, unlearning racism and dealing with racist incidents.
Designed for use in professional development, with case studies, references and accessible articles for students, this book provides essential information for practitioners, volunteers, administrators, support workers, trainers, development workers, policy makers, leaders, managers, inspectors, officers and researchers.
